Overview

Orange County's Hidden Gem! O'Neill Regional Park is a beautiful park with extensive trails available! Great parking and restrooms, a playground at the main entrance!

Description

The 7 and 10 Mile course SHARE the first 5 miles with the 5 course!!!

From O'Neill Regional Park Group Area 2&3 , head out on the road towards the park entrance/ranger station. Turn left up the park road (the ranger station should be on your right-hand side). Turn left at the first chance up O'Neil Park Road. Turn right to head up Paw Foot Trail, which is begins your journey on the trails. The first two miles of the trail are the hardest part, with several moderate-to-difficult climbs. ALL of your elevation gain in the first two miles! Paw Foot is a twisty and wide fire road, which turns into Live Oak Canyon.

On Live Oak Canyon, the trail straightens out, and you can see beautiful views from the top! You stay on Live Oak Canyon, turning left at the intersection of Live Oak/Coyote Run, where you see a great view of the Monastery. Stay on the trail until you reach Monastery Road, and turn right, heading down. Use caution on the downhill road, as there is live traffic.

It's extremely limited, but there MAY be cars! At the bottom of Monastery Road, turn right onto Hoffman Homestead. The next two miles are shaded singletrack trails, on a slight downhill. When you exit Hoffman Homestead, take a left turn onto the road, followed by another immediate right turn. Follow the road back to the start/finish area, but BEFORE you get to the finish line, 7 and 10 milers will turn right to head out on the Arroyo Seco Trail. The Arroyo Seco is predominantly flat and wide fire roads. There is one small rocky section to pass through.
